DSC_9315Teacher by day, mama to my fur baby 24/7, and photographer in between. I have a busy calendar, but I love my down time. I regularly schedule lazy days during vacation time in order to relax and recuperate, always with Bailey by my side, of course!


  1. You have a wonderful blog Patty with exceptional photography to top it off! I’m so glad Fiesta Friday led me to your site, I’ll look forward to your future posts while I explore the past ones!

  2. Thank you so much for all of your support. I am such a fan of all the work that you do! I would love to possibly do a collaboration! Let me know if you are interested and I will shoot over my email.

  3. Patty- I am so excited that Lauzan nominated you for The Sunshine Award! I would have nominated you if she hadn’t. πŸ™‚ You spread so much sunshine through your encouragement, realness, beautiful pictures, awesome food, and adorable doggie! πŸ™‚ Congrats!

  4. Beautiful blog Patty, I feel happy that you stopped by mine so that I could discover your lovely recipes, photos and stories πŸ™‚ I’ve followed you since we first connected but I wanted to leave a message on here too. P.S Bailey is adorable! x

  5. Love your blog and am now following. Learned about it from Miss Beretta Illustration blog. She did a fantastic illustration of you and your cute dog.

  6. Nice to meet you πŸ™‚ I’m glad I have come across your blog because I really like your photography and the general positive vibe it spreads. πŸ™‚

  7. Hi Patty! Quite honestly I’ve always visited your blog from my phone (and loved it and you) and today was the first time I saw your blog on my laptop! IT IS PERFECT..!I’ve always loved your photographs but they look so much more amazing on a big screen..I hope you’re submitting these beautiful pictures to foodgawker.com and tastespotting.com. Your pictures totally deserve to be on foodporn websites..they are gorgeous!
    P.S. Bailey is ultra gorgeous..Such a pretty baby! Kiss him for me please πŸ™‚

    • Awww, you’re so sweet, Radhika!! I do submit to Foodgawker and Tastespotting. Most of my photos have been accepted, with the occasional random rejection. I’ve read up on pro-bloggers getting rejected so I try not to take it too personally. πŸ˜‰ And Bailey just received an extra kiss from you. He says thank you very much!

  8. Hi Patty,

    Have you heard of β€œMy Writing Process blog tour”? I hadn’t heard of it before, but it sounds really interesting! It’s another way for us bloggers to continue to get to know one another and be introduced to other blogs.

    I’ve been invited to join the β€œMy Writing Process” blog tour and have accepted for June2 nd, 2014. This tour rolls out across three new bloggers’ sites each week. So, I can invite three writers to carry the tour forward. I really admire your blog and think it would be interesting for more bloggers to hear about your writing process! I guess it’s essentially a chain letter of sorts, but a little bit more sophisticated!

    Your date would be June 9, 2014. Please let me know if you’re interested. If you choose not to participate, that is completely fine with me too. Please just let me know, so I can ask other bloggers. πŸ™‚

  9. Hi Patty! I know you don’t seem to do the awards, but I had to give this to you anyway! πŸ˜€
    You are such a dear! I really love our bloggy friendship! πŸ™‚ And I have so appreciated how you always come by and read what I write and I always look forward to what you have to say! This is why I am giving you the Wonderful Team Member Readership Award! For more info go here:

  10. Thank you for visiting my blog! I’m glad you did, as it led me to yours. You have such a lovely blog! πŸ™‚

  11. Greetings Patty, just stumbled upon your site! Lovely photography! I am not one (photographer) unfortunately, my thing is writing?! Cooking, sharing recipes, enjoying Beach living, etc. Keep up the wonderful work. It is appreciated. Cheryl.

Please tell me what you think!
